    Rice Milk or Soy Milk in Russian....?

    How would you say Rice Milk and Soy Milk in Russian?

    And following on from that, does anyone know any brands of Rice Milk or Soy milk that are on sale in Belarus...?

    (I am allergic to normal milk)

    Ok, I understand.
    But I wonder what Belarussian people who are allergic to milk do... I accidentally ate something with milk in it, and now I feel terrible.

    Oh, that's an awesome answer! Such a Belarusian way to handle anything... High five!

    I can tell you if I hadn't seen this reply, I would've written something similar. =))

    Rockzmom - thanks for the tip! I'll look into that for sure.
    Maybe it would work, I've never tried it. I just stick with food and dishes that I know are ok, and then use rice milk. But it's been hard on this trip.

    This is the longest trip I've been on for ages and ages and milk is probably in at least half of all food around here. It would take forever to read all labels in Russian and try to understand whether it contains milk or not, so I've tried tried to stick with things I know. And my Russian is not good enough to be able to ask staff about it + they might not know or care to answer anyway. Different labels of food are used in Eastern Europe compared with Western Europe, it's been really hard - yesterday eve I must have eaten something that had a lot of milk in it, because the allergy kicked in quite badly.

    What happens is; I feel like I have a terrible flu and headache, and it last for about a day.

    Hanna, I would definitely consider stopping buying food in stores there, if I were you. Maybe you should turn to some cafes/restaurants instead, maybe at least there staff can understand basic English?

    Thanks for the advice both of you.

    Well they don't speak English.... It's the same in most of Europe, apart from the North Western parts. In some parts they don't speak it because they don't want to (despite actually knowing a fair bit). But in Eastern Europe and most parts of Southern Europe, people generally can't speak English to a useful level.

    I noticed that some younger people in Kiev spoke English though - people who worked in shops. Hotel receptionists speak it, but even at this excellent hotel the level is quite basic.

    The staff at the tourist office in Gomel could not speak English - in fact I am not even sure if the place I visited even was a tourist office at all, despite the claim from the guide book that it was.
    They had some leaflets in English though.

    I remember a sign "Soy milk" on the Brovki str. Between University of Informatics an Radioelectronics buildings. if I have not mistaken right after the second block wich address is 6-Brovki str., But it was quite long time ago. I've never seen this stuff in shops. The only thing i can think of is here also I know a health meal shop in the Metro Pushkinskaya. May be there you'll find some kind of the stuff, I'm really not sure

    Awesome tips! Thanks a lot! I'll check that out for sure - both places. I'll do it today.
    And I have yet to check out rockzmom's tip. It's just a tricky thing to ask for, in Russian, in a pharmacy. If they have it, they probably don't have that exact brand. So I would have to explain what it is, in Russian.

    In the meantime I actually saw something: Soy milk powder - by a Belarussian company.
    It seems to be for small children and I couldn't understand the instructions for how to prepare it.. But I think that if I buy a whisk and heat the water, it will dissolve and I can then store it in the fridge.

    Rice milk CAN be made from either rice flour (I couldn't see that in the supermarket - but I may not have been looking in the right place....) or real rice (although making it from rice tastes less good and is rather time consuming). Making a really "professional" batch requires some ingredients that I don't know how to get in Belarus; but it's possible to make a basic version from simply rice, water plus sugar and salt.

    Either way, I had a nice latte for breakfast in my "lux" flat.
